So the votes are in and tabulated and we're now officially 

The Flat Book Society!  Anyone interested in low-stress science (no dry, academic tomes here!) is welcome to join us.

 

A few points:

 

There will be a new group read once every other month, starting September 1st.

 

Books will be voted on by the group.

 

I have created a voting list to get us started, culled from the list Themis-Athena so very generously put together from the groups suggestions.  These are the top 10 books people indicated interest in reading.

 

Any member of the group can add books to this list.  Books must be non-fiction and the main subject must be Science.  Please do not add self-help or psychology books.  Please note that the BookLikes system assumes if you're adding a book, you're voting for it, so your vote will automatically be recorded for any book you add.

 

Any member can vote for any number of books, so don't think of this as a one-time vote for your favourite.  Vote for all the books you think you'd be interested in reading as part of the group.

 

I'll use the two books that receive the most votes by August 15th to create the first two club reads.  These will be our group reads for September and November.

 

The voting list will remain in place indefinitely, so as you find books that look like they might be of interest to the group, please add them.  (Chosen books will be rolled off the list.)

 

Please let me know if you have any questions I didn't cover here.  I've tried to make sure every book on the voting list has a summary in place, so please look over them and choose your poison!
